I wanted to stream WebM to browsers, but current VLC has a few deficiencies
that must be fixed before that's possible. Please find attached a patch
series against HEAD with a few fixes (well, not strictly attached; I'll try
to activate some git-fu to send them as separate messages to this thread).

I run VLC as follows:

  vlc -vv $source vlc://quit --sout '#transcode{vcodec=VP80,vb=1000,acodec=vorb,ab=128,deinterlace}:std{access=http{mime=video/webm},mux=webm,dst=:9094}' --sout-mux-caching 5000 --network-caching 2000

Tested against VLC, MPlayer, Google Chrome, Firefox, and Opera.
